Pocket Grater (above, two shown)
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel and Erv Tschantz. Historic reproduction.
Years ago, a simple wood and brass grater was discovered in a join under the summer beam of a barn built in the 1740s. When the grater was opened, half a nutmeg was found inside.  We like to think that a man sat on the beam to eat his lunch, set his grater on the join, and never remembered to pick it up. Looks like people have always been forgetting lunch things at work.
We've reproduced that little 1740s grater from beautiful cherry wood and brass. It's got a sliding  cover and a small wooden handle to keep your fingers away from the rasp, and the little depression inside is big enough to stow a nutmeg or two.
Measures 4 3/8 by 1 1/2. Cherry wood and brass.
Pocket Grater - $65
